The term psychic comes from the Greek and by definition means ‘of the soul’. There are many mis-conceptions about the term ‘psychic’ and having psychic abilities. There are several very talented psychics out there who predict the future and that’s great but what about using and opening up to YOUR abilities in the present?
Everyone has and already uses at least one or two of their psychic abilities. If you’ve ever walked into a room and felt uncomfortable or just ‘had a bad feeling’ about something you are using your intuition. Intuition is one ability and another is the ability to see energy. Those of you who practice holding an image in your mind are using your ability to see!
The question in the title asks “did you turn off your ability to see” but it might be more appropriate to ask WHEN did you turn it off? You had this ability when you were born and as you grew up you were probably invalidated for using it. Most children have their abilities ‘turned off’ at a very young age for various reasons. A child sees or senses something and in their innocence usually blurt out what they see whether it is proper to do so or not. They also see things that their parents don’t want them to see.
At a very young age we begin to invalidate what we are seeing as real because we’re told it’s our imagination, we’re crazy, wrong or we’re not really seeing it and the more we are told this the less we trust it. If you happen to ‘see’ something you’re not supposed to energy gets thrown directly at your 6th chakra. It’s hard to ‘see’ with a big blob on your third eye!
Open your inner eyes and see!
As with all your psychic abilities you need to feel safe and trust what you are experiencing. Let’s face it, in the world today there are things we choose not to see. We are lied to by our politicians, employers, friends and those with an agenda. We don’t want to see pain, suffering, poverty or that someone we love is not being truthful. There are times we don’t want to see ourselves and own our own truth. It’s not always comfortable to see the truth so it takes courage to turn this ability on.
When you see clearly, you begin to separate the truth from the lies and this includes those lies you’ve told yourself or bought into. Looking at yourself is the first step toward opening your inner eyes again. You’ll be amazed at how much clarity you gain by merely deciding and giving yourself permission to see!
Just for fun, close your eyes for a sec and create a mental image picture of a rose. See it clearly with its petals, stem, leaves and even thorns. Can you see it? Now, allow all that ‘stuff’ on your third eye that says you are wrong and you can’t see to go into the rose then like magic make the rose disappear. Believe it or not you just used your psychic ability to see and cleared some energy in the process!
How simple and fun was that? The truth is, it really is that simple! The more you clear and access your own abilities, the easier it is and the more you will trust what you see. You are not wrong for seeing, it’s not your imagination AND you may be psychic not crazy!~Shine Your Light Debbie
